Myrtle Cottage

Myrtle Cottage is a spacious and attractive, thatched Grade II listed stone cottage in the centre of the pretty village of Netherbury. The cottage has been furnished to a high standard and provides modern comforts whilst retaining many period features, such as the large inglenook fireplace with bread oven - a remnant from the day when Myrtle Cottage was the village bakery.
The pretty, extensive garden has its very own Shepherd's Hut for guests to enjoy.
Netherbury was the home of Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall's original 'River Cottage' and the inspiration for the village of 'Cloton' in Thomas Hardy's short story 'Destiny and the Blue Cloak'.
There is a pub in the neighbouring village of Waytown, a short walk away and other good pubs and restaurants in the attractive towns of Beaminster (two miles) and Bridport (four miles).
Netherbury makes an ideal base for walking and cycling and its close proximity to the Jurassic Coast provides access to sailing, fishing, fossil hunting and much more.
Pear Tree Cottage, sleeping 4 guests is also available to book at this location.
